Pelicans are birds we usually associate with points south, such as Florida or Louisiana. Even though Arkansas is in the birds’ wintering area, it’s still exciting to see them. Here, white pelicans dot the Arkansas River between Ozark and Altus, the epicenter of the state’s wine country. (Drive-by iPhone photo taken Feb. 17.)
We’re taking a rather broad view of “neighborhood” for this week’s challenge –using the panorama function on the iPhone camera. Love the distortion the panorama provides, especially of the car rounding the corner at the same time the phone was scanning the scenery:
Not taken with a phone, but just as a humorous coda for the photo above:

Thanks for the update, Bill!
Our brother-in-law Bill, a former TV station photographer, is still newsman through and through. While driving home from work last week, he spotted something unusual on the interstate in Memphis and maneuvered for a closer view. His instincts were right on. This was no ordinary wide load. This was the 2010 National Christmas Tree en route from Wyoming to its placement in the nation’s capitol. Oh — and kids, don’t try this at home.
A sunset that could’ve doubled as a World War II victory poster.
